Join us for a dynamic and interactive discussion about dystonia evaluation and treatment. We will dive into the basics of understanding the diagnosis including the latest neuroscience evidence of pathophysiology. We will then highlight key tools for sensory assessment and neuroplasticity based treatment. We will end by applying treatment principles to case studies. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
